Episode 3: Climate Change Activism with Nick Carter

It's been hot in Brisbane recently, a little too hot! Forget the Hottest 100, 2016 was the third year in a row claiming 'hottest year ever'. In this episode, Caspar got cooked binge thinking with Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) activist and all around good-guy Nick Carter. Nick schooled Caspar in all things climate change in Australia including details of specific campaigns underway, the moral case for action, why our politicians suck at this and how we can understand why baby boomers love their coal. You can check out the AYCC on the web, Facebook, Instagram (@ayccqld) and Twitter (@aycc.qld). As always, all the awesome music you hear is by Big Gigantic (www.biggigantic.net) who we thank for their permission to use. Get on board... and get involved!
